Together, the six sites add up to 6.3 gigawatts (GW) in potential capacity.
Four of the proposed sites are in waters more than 50m deep — the limit for fixed-bottom turbine technology.
While floating turbine technology is still in the experimental phase, CIP Taiwan Round 3 Projects chief executive Jesper Krarup Holst described the decision to go into deeper waters as a “no brainer” and urged the government to initiate a pilot project for floating wind farms.
